Avid Bookshop presents author Amy Rowlands on Friday, May 16, 2014, from 6:30pm - 7:30pm for her book The transcriptionist. There is no admission charge. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Amy Rowlands is a staff editor for the New York Times Book Review, and has just published her first novel The transcriptionist this spring from Algonquin Books. ABOUT THE BOOK: Lena, The transcriptionist, sits alone in a room far away from the hum of the newsroom that is the heard of the Record, the NYC newspaper for which she works. For years, she has been an ever-present link for reporters calling in stories from around the world. There once were many transcriptionists who shared the room, but technology has changed all that. Still, Lena remains loyal and unquestioning – until one day she realizes that the words had lost their meaning. When she reads a piece in the paper about a Jane Doe mauled to death by a line, she recognizes the woman in the picture. They had met just a few days before. Obsessed with understanding what caused the woman to climb into the lion’s den, Lena begins a campaign for truth that will destroy the Record’s complacency and shake the venerable institution to its very foundation. In so doing, she also recovers a life – her own. An exquisite novel that asks probing questions about journalism and ethics, about the decline of the newspaper and the failure of language, it is also the story of a woman’s effort to establish a place in an increasingly alien and alienating world.
